The Year of the Dog Travel was developed to meet the needs of cigar aficionados looking to travel with their prized cigars in style. This high-performance travel weighs less than 700 g, and the removable innovative tray has a capacity of eight cigars and is adapted for both large and small cigars. It is specially crafted with high fabric waves to prevent the cigars from being crushed, and a soft fabric to preserve the cigar wrappers.

By twisting it to the left, the smaller blade will fit any cigar ring gauge from 40 to 50 (RG). With one single movement it is possible to access both blades while holding the cigar in the other hand. MSRP of the Travel is $350, while the MSRP of the Duocut is $230.
